Innocenti Research Report Data and Research on Children and Youth in Forced Displacement: Identifying Gaps and Opportunities AUTHOR(S) Josiah Kaplan; World Bank Group; UNHCR .; Emanuela Bianchera Published: 2021 Innocenti Research Report Despite the growing scale of forced displacement involving children and youth, our understanding of this phenomenon is severely limited by significant gaps in the availability of both relevant data and data-driven research. According to UNICEF, there is recorded data by age for just 56 percent of the refugee population under UNHCR’s mandate, while IDMC notes that just 14 percent of countries and territories with reported internally displaced populations provide data on age. The following edition of the Joint Data Center Quarterly Digest, jointly produced by UNICEF and the JDC, spotlights several recent data-driven contributions addressing these critical gaps in knowledge. We focus, in particular, on mental health risks faced by forcibly displaced children; evidence from existing evaluations and assessments on ‘what works’; and emerging research into the use of technological innovations for the management of child migration and displacement data. Taken together, this literature selection offers examples of the kinds of credible, actionable evidence which practitioners and policymakers urgently need to better support those who are forcibly displaced around the world, regardless of age. + - Cite this publication | No. of pages: 40 | Thematic area: Conflict and Displacement, Migration | Tags: migration, refugees × COPY BIBLIOGRAPHIC CITATION Josiah Kaplan; World Bank Group; UNHCR .; Emanuela Bianchera 2021 Data and Research on Children and Youth in Forced Displacement: Identifying Gaps and Opportunities. , pp. 40.
